Friendship plays a greater role in many of our lives than we ever imagine or acknowledge. Marsha Karzmer's inspirational new book is a celebration of all that friends are for each other. It's the perfect birthday, holiday, any-day-at-all, or because-I'm-thinking-of-you gift.
Here's what friends do. They:
• Inspire you
• Remind you of who you can be
• Hang out with you
• Help you live it up
• Provide a shoulder
• Love you best
• Tell you the truth
What Are Friends For? follows up on Marsha Karzmer's best-selling first book How Old Is Beautiful? Karzmer applies her eagle eye and sharp scissors to phrases she finds in magazines and newspapers and constructs "ransom note" style paeans to women everywhere.
Friendship is a many splendored thing -- our friends help us grieve, celebrate, grow, and giggle. What Are Friends For? has quirky, smart, sincere, and downright funny statements on how friendships change us and evolve over time. Karzmer draws on her own experiences with love, life, marriage, and children, and how friends have played an important part in her life.
Marsha Karzmer is an independent signing agent, a videographer, and a writer with scissors.

Together they have four children. She lives with her family in Youngstown, Ohio.
"Marsha takes the words of many women, from many sources, and assembles them into the words of everywoman." -BJ Gallagher, author of Everything I Need to Know I Learned from Other Women
